I do normal work out at gym daily. Trainer has suggested to use supplementary protein powders. Is it healthy to use such artificial protein? Because I have heard its side effects on kidneys. Please help me with the myths and facts of the same. Thanks.

Yes, you are right. Artificial protein supplements can be harmful and are not required, if you eat properly. Natural proteins like paneer /pulses/soyabean/nuts or egg whites /fish /lean chicken (non veg).

Kidney stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Pain relievers. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen sodium. Medical therapy. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) dietitian who will aslo prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan including dietary therapy.

I have two kidney stones I want food diet please tell me what should i have in food?

I have two kidney stones I want food diet please tell me what should i have in food?
Carrot juice is recommended as part of a diet for kidney stones. It is believed to help fight off bacterial infections in the kidney, as it contains vitamin A. Papayas are used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat urinary tract infections and kidney stones there is an affirmative correlation between whole grain-rich diets and reduction of kidney stones. This is due to the fact that they contain sufficient amounts of vitamins, fibre and minerals. Whole grains that fall under this category include brown rice, cracked wheat, whole wheat, and barley.The dietary requirements for renal stone sufferers are also important typically include potassium rich fruits and vegetables.

Urinary Infection - Causes And Treatment!

Urinary tract infection is a widespread disorder that most of the human beings face, especially in later stages of their lives. Women who are sexually active are more prone for this infection.

The symptoms that are identified with urinary tract infection are frequent urination, pain and burning sensation at the time of passing urine. In certain cases, women even experience leaking of urine while sleeping. It is advised not to take this condition casually as it can lead to further complications. Medications need to be taken to reduce the discomfort and treat the infection. 

Causes and predisposing factors of Urinary Infection: 

  1. Urinary tract infection is mostly caused by bacteria. 
  2. Sexual intercourse, pregnancydiabetes and stones in urinary tract predispose to or aggravate urinary tract infection. 
  3. Chances of urinary tract infection are more if a person has sex with many partners. 
  4. In postmenopausal women, incidence of urinary tract infection is more due to depletion of certain hormones. 
  5. Women should not hold back the urge for urinating frequently, as it makes one prone to infection. 

Management of Urinary Tract Infection: 

There are simple and helpful home remedies that can supplement management of urinary tract infection: The latter alone are not enough. You have to consult Doctor for proper treatment of this condition. Certain supportive measures that one can take in cases of urinary tract infection are as follows: 

  1. It is very necessary to drink enough water, as it would help flush the bacteria from the bladder that cause the infection. It is advisable to drink at least 80 ounces of water on a daily basis. 
  2. Spicy foods and bladder irritants like caffeine, carbonated drinks and artificial sweeteners should preferably be cut off from the diet.
  3. Include healthy foods in your diet that are high on fibre and helpful in digestive health of your body. 
  4. It is advisable to adopt healthier habits and quit smoking. One should wear loose clothing and make use of personal hygiene products that are free from any fragrance. 
  5. At times, there is burning, pressure, and pain around pubic area in cases of urinary tract infection. Applying a heating pad helps soothe the area. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Good to know that your kidneys are normal in size and shape & ecg report is also normal. Remember, there is a difference between picture of an organ and its functioning, kidneys'appear' to be normal but are not functioning properly as blood urea & creatinine are very high. Kidneys are like a filter of body that retains the useful products like proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals. Urea and creatinine are by products of metabolism and are excreted in some amounts, but if filter called kidneys, start to fail, the levels of urea and creatinine start rising in blood and this is an indication of kidney failure. You may need blood dialysis/ abdominal dialysis depending upon various factors, as decided by your treating doctor, so that chronic kidney disease does not become worse. Do consult a renal specialist without delay & remember ckd (chronic kidney disease) can have an effect on an otherwise healthy heart.

6 Tips About Post Kidney Transplant Diet

6 Tips About Post Kidney Transplant Diet

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure where your kidneys are cleansed and rebuild using the kidneys of a deceased person, in order to flush out the excessive waste fluids from the kidneys. It is of paramount importance and your dietary patterns and lifestyle should be altered after you go through a kidney transplant. Your dietician will help you out by preparing your diet chart to clearly list out the foods that you should consume and those which you should avoid after the surgery. The diet chart that would be prepared for you would be highly subjective and it would totally depend on your lifestyle, medical history, family health records, genetically transmitted conditions and such others. Apart from improving the condition of your kidney and assisting your transplant, the diet chart will also help you to lose weight, boost your metabolism and enhance your immune system. Some of the most common recommendations that your dietician may give you are as follows:

  • Eating at least 5 full servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day as both are an important part of a healthy diet for a person who has just undergone a kidney transplant. The vegetables should mostly be eaten after cooking/boiling as per the suggestions of your dietician.
  • Having enough of fiber rich foods in your daily diet is essential as it speeds up the process of digestion and prevents constipation by promoting frequent and easy bowel movements.
  • If you are a non-vegetarian, then you should be going for lean meat alternatives which are low on fat and high on nutritional value. Examples of such meat are fishes and poultry. Additionally, you should also avoid all kinds of red meat as it is high on fat.
  • Consume low-fat milk and dairy products as they help to prevent the fat accumulation inside the body and also maintain an acceptable level of calcium and phosphorus inside your body.
  • Maintain a low level of iodized salt in your meals, as it helps to keep your blood pressure under control.
  • Over the counter health supplements like vitamins and proteins can also be taken, if recommended by your dietician.
